Grandma Won NintendoWorld's Brain Age Tournament!
Grandma won! The last round was INCREDIBLY close. She beat Ruth, another gaming grandparent, by only a few seconds. We wern't quite sure who won until they announced it. Grandma put her stylus down, as did Ruth, and it was over. Grandma's never really won aything before, so she got a big kick out it! She decided to give the DS units and most of the games (minus True Swing Golf, Tetris DS and Star Fox) to her daughter and grandkids so they can share in the awesomeness.
Here's a full set of photos of the trip I uploaded to Flickr.
Of course, GoNintendo.com was also there, and has a cool article and Flickr set as well.
She had a blast :)
Also, if you guys see the ugliest motherfucker you can imagine standing next to her holding the basket of prizes in any photos floating around, that's me. In my defense, I had a hangover. I can't help it; I like New York City too much not to enjoy a Friday night in the proper fashion.
It turns out Grandma's favorite drink is Kahlua and Bailey's Irish Cream (but she's smart enough not to get wasted, unlike me.)
